CLEVELAND — Capacity limits are a thing of the past at Progressive Field. As Ohio officially lifted its COVID health orders Wednesday, the Cleveland Indians are also returning to full capacity operations. Masks are now optional, too.
“If you feel comfortable going without one, you can do that,” Curtis Danburg, vice president of communications for the Indians, tells 3News. “If you want to still wear one, we respect that, too.”
Fans, however, will have to wait a bit longer before experiencing a more crowded ballpark because the Indians have postponed Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox due to inclement weather. The game will now take place as a doubleheader at 1:10 p.m. on Sept. 23. Fans can use their same ticket to enter the makeup game.
"If they are unable to attend the makeup game on Sept. 23, they will be able to exchange into one of 13 different game options."
Lifting restrictions is a big shift for fans at Progressive Field after capacity limits were originally capped at 30% back on opening day with masks required.
Another important note: All tickets will be mobile entry. Progressive Field will also continue to enforce the bag policy of only allowing clutches (9”x5”x2”), medical bags and diaper bags into the park.
Looking ahead, fans can also expect the full return of the Kids Clubhouse, Family Deck and other options at Progressive Field starting June 11.
